Jesus Christ Eternally Refreshing

But when Ordinary peered around a leaf, he didn’t see a Giant obstacle, but a mighty Being. “Hail, brave Warrior!” the Being called out. “Who, me?” Ordinary asked in a small voice. “Yes. You behind that bush.” “I’m no Warrior,” mumbled Ordinary, stepping out from behind the bush. “I’m a Nobody from the Land of Familiar,” he said. “Every Nobody who comes this far is a Warrior,” said the Being. “I’m the Commander. The Dream Giver sent me to help you defeat your Giants.

– An excerpt from the book The Dream Giver 

Do you feel like Ordinary? Do you hide from your giants? Well you might be afraid of your giants (everything that is bigger than you in your life, like your overwhelming boss at work or that situation in your life that seem like it has a strangle hold on your life) but God is your Commander who…

Excellence – not Perfection

Old Lady Brady's Joy Journey


Once again Abigail had blown it!  She had cleaned the house and thought she had covered every corner.  When her husband, Kyle, came home, he lost it!  Look at this drawer!  It is a mess.  I am so sick of you not doing things right!  She rushed over and began to straighten the offending drawer.  She sighed.  Nothing she ever did was good enough.

Yesterday he had run his finger over the top of the door and found dust.  He raved.  She felt again like nothing she ever did was good enough.  The day before, he told her he  had written a date on top of the refrigerator a week before and she hadn’t found it.  He ridiculed her.

She tried.  She really did, but it was impossible to please him.

Food Memory Friday: Amish Peanut Butter

Amish Peanutbutter

Hickory Creek Lane

I grew up in the heart of Amish country in northeastern Ohio. When I tell people this after they ask me where I’m from, I usually get the question, “are you Amish?” The answer- no, I’m not.  In fact, my parents moved into the area almost 30 years ago after they graduated dental school and raised us in this really lovely part of Ohio. I guess you could call us outsiders in a sense, but we were welcomed into the community and I really appreciated growing up in such a unique region.

One of the best things about being around this group of people is the cooking and baking.  The Amish are well-known for their rich, homemade food. Pan-fried chicken, mashed potatoes, noodles, applesauce, pies, doughnuts…oh my gravy, the list goes on and on! Perhaps my favorite Amish menu item, though, is this Amish peanut butter, or church spread. It’s…

Thy Word is a Lamp

1 John 4:10                  King James Version (KJV)

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

Matthew 22:23-46

Marriage at the Resurrection

23 That same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question. 24 “Teacher,” they said, “Moses told us that if a man dies without having children, his brother must marry the widow and raise up offspring for him. 25 Now there were seven brothers among us. The first one married and died, and since he had no children, he left his wife to his brother. 26 The same thing happened to the second and third brother, right on down to the seventh. 27 Finally, the woman died. 28 Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be…
